    Do you have to brown the meat before placing in the slow cooker?

      It’s optional. Browning for me can sometimes make the meat tough and chewy, while not browning it allows it to cook in the juices which makes it really tender. Just in my opinion

    I love this recipe. I buy cheaper roasts on sale, cut them up and made this. 8 hours on med and fork tender, flavorful. Family devoured a 6 qt crock in 1 sitting.
